Holiday prayer

Dear Lord,

Thank you for this holiday—an extra chance for fun and play.

There’s so much I can learn and do even if I’m not in school.

All the beauty and gifts abound. The world you created is all around.

Today’s a chance to go explore, try new things, and discover more.

I’ll miss my teacher and my friends just as it happens on weekends.

But I know that for today, I’m thankful for this holiday.

Thank you God bless
